Volvo hat 1959 die Erfindung des Dreipunkt-Gurtes patentfrei fรผr alle nutzbar gemacht, weil der Nutzen den Profit bei weitem รผberwiegt.

Und damit zurรผck nach 2021, wo in einer Pandemie Patente auf lebenswichtige Impfstoffe eine bessere Herdenimmunitรคt weltweit verhindern.

Ich bin der Geist, der stets verneint!
Und das mit Recht; denn alles, was entsteht,
Ist wert, daรŸ es zugrunde geht;
Drum besser wรคr's, daรŸ nichts entstรผnde.
So ist denn alles, was ihr Sรผnde,
Zerstรถrung, kurz das Bรถse nennt,
Mein eigentliches Element.

โ€” Vers 1338 ff. / Mephistopheles

I wish I had more time to work on these days, but at least I got a mini project through: Adding opt-out headers to the website. ๐Ÿ˜Ž

Some thoughts on licencing.

Most emulator projects use the #GPL license because their projects are community driven.

You can tell when a project has a company focus in mind by looking at the license.

If the license is a permissive one, like the #BSD or the #MIT, they aim to be taken by a company, so they want to give them as few responsibilities as possible.

When a project is a GPL one, what the project wants to do is to protect the members work by forcing companies to return the code.

When you think you've seen it all, another startup pops up and starts locking users out of their when they are late on their payments.

This is a sad reminder on how important it is to make sure you actually own your devices. I'm really grateful for projects like and challenging injustices like this.

When asked about fears of automation in 1969, Arthur C. Clarke famously said that we shouldn't worry about automation: "the goal of the future is full unemployment, so we can play." I have never seen his answer quoted in full.

40 orgas across Europe. We call on the EU to ban biometric mass surveillance.

For a future in which we are treated like humans, not walking barcodes, in which we are respected and not humiliated, discriminated against or treated like crime suspects, in which our options are not limited by an algorithm based on our body and looks.

Now's the time to act!
The tech is out there, but the EU is drafting new laws on AI.
